Can't see a Baptism for Evan Rees, Swansea.
« on: Wednesday 24 September 14 18:38 BST (UK) »

On the 1851 Census for Wales, my Great/Great/Grandfather, Evan Rees gives his age as 40yrs.

This should give him a DOB of (Approx) 1811... However, I am unable to find a Birth or Baptism for him:-(

His son, (also Evan Rees) was Baptised in the Wesleyan Tabernacle Chapel in Tontine Street Swansea in December 1836, - and so it's quite likely that his father was also a Chapel Baptism, - but I can't see one for him...

This is the 1851 Census Entry for him:

Country: Wales
Registration district: Swansea
Sub-registration district: Llandilo
 
Piece: 2465
Folio: 299
Page Number: 54
Household schedule number: 196
Household Members:
 
Evan Rees 40
Anne Rees 39
William Rees 19
Anne Rees 17
Evan Rees 14
Elizabeth Rees 11
David Rees 9
John Rees 6
Thomas Rees 4
Daniel Rees 2.

Any help welcomed!

Can anyone else on here see something that I'm missing?

Have you tried the Swansea archives?

They have the entire baptisms, marriages and burials available to browse at your leisure

I am having the same problem with my ancestor

Sorry to hear that you're having the same problem:-(

No, I haven't tried the West Glamorgan Archives, because I'm in Hertfordshire... (I've tried FindMyPast, Ancestry and Family Search). Have you tried on those?

Best Wishes, Romilly.

That's very kind of you, - thanks.

Btw, whose Baptism are you looking for? (FindMyPast have just put a new batch of Glamorgan Non Conformist Baptisms on that Site).
